When you are considering wall décor options, you may not think about plates, but they are a fun way to add color and personality to a wall. Dena from Hearts and Sharts is always getting compliments on her plate wall, which is made up of her own unique creations – hand-me-down and Goodwill plates given new life with Dena’s favorite quotes, movie scenes, and designs. Dena shares her technique for transferring text and images to plates, so you too can create one-of kind decorative plates for your wall.

Silver Starburst Mirror

I am thrilled to have Mrs. Polly Rogers back with another of her fabulous and frugal creations, and let me say that her starburst mirror is a true lesson in thriftiness! The secret ingredient here is bendy straws that Polly painted silver and attached to an inexpensive round mirror. Polly says, “This project is fast, cheap, and easy but DRAMATIC and stands up to the closest scrutiny.”

Painted Stripe Curtains

As I recently shared on Infarrantly Creative, I am changing things up in my family room after about ten years of the same color scheme. My first big undertaking was painting striped curtains. Considering color, pattern, price, and length, I always have trouble finding just the right curtains, so painting my own was the perfect option. I absolutely love how they came out and cannot believe the difference they make!

Decorative Fireplace Screen

Vone at Vone Inspired needed to update her fireplace but couldn’t afford to buy a $200 screen. Since her family doesn’t use the fireplace, Vone decided she could make something that might not be functional but could at least add to the style of the space.  She did just that by building a screened frame and adding real branches and leaves cut from a soda can. When it’s all spray painted, it looks amazingly like an iron fireplace screen!
